To know your weight.
It's simple but yet 4 out of 5 of the people whom told me they want to lose weight don't have a weighing scale. And they don't measure their weight regularly.
Here's how to start:
1. Get yourself a weighing scale in your room.
2. Measure your weight every morning.
3. Record your weight measurement everyday in a book, or best, an excel spreadsheet.
Get yourself a weighing scale in your room.
Sorry for the lousy photo, I am too busy to take a decent one.
If you really want to slim down, get yourself a digital weighing machine. The kind that shows the decimal point. Other weighing scale gives optical illusion, and imho, just doesn't work.
(I got mine from NTUC, only $19.90. Saw one in Sheng Song, cost less than $25 I think. )
Measure your weight every morning.
This is important, as this would allow you to know exactly how heavy you weight, and if you overeat the previous day, it would be reflected immediately, and it will stop you from eating more.
For most of us, I think it requires a lot of courage to stand on to the weighing machine. We know we are fatter than before, but just don't want to see that horrifying number on the machine. That's why we pretend that we forget to measure our weight. But the real reason is... We don't want to know.
It's ok if you are skinny like my friend Mini. But if you are truly determined to lose weight, you should stop deceiving yourself.
Stop looking at the computer screen now, get up.
Get to the nearest weighing machine you can find and KNOW YOUR WEIGHT.
After feeling sad and angry with yourself. It's time to face the music, and start dieting.
Record your weight measurement everyday in a book, or best, an excel spreadsheet.
Next, start monitoring your weight.
You should record down your weight everyday. You can do it in a small exercise book or something. I find the best place to put down in records is in an excel spreedsheet. This way, you can do your sums and get excel to update for you how much far away you are from your ideal weight.
